On August 23, 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was petitioned by the Center for Biological Diversity and four other organizations to ban all lead in fishing tackle under the Toxic Substances Control Act. This includes sinkers, jigs, weighted fly line, and components that contain lead such as brass and ballast in a wide variety of lures, including spinners, stick baits and more. click to submit your opinion I highly suggest that you send this to everyone you know. This is one way they will try to stop fishing and hunting. Put this on all the fishing forums you know of. This has to be stopped.
